麦子、稗子和芥菜种

“田主的仆人来告诉他说,主阿,你不是撒好种在田里吗?从哪里来的稗子呢?” - 太 13:27

✟ 灵修

我们知道我们所生活的世界有许多美好的事物,以及奇妙的祝福,但也有苦难和破碎。自从我们的第一对父母犯了罪(创3),神供应我们的美好事物中,就有了劳苦和愁烦。


我们可以得到和栽培各种好食物,但我们必须为此劳苦。我们可以享受健康,但我们也会生病——甚至死去。大自然可以惊人地美丽,但也可能显得邪恶而残酷。


在稗子和麦子的比喻中,耶稣指出了世上生命的腐败和破碎。因为在罪和恶带来的破坏中,仍有许多良善,所以祂愿意等到收割的时候。到那时,审判会来临,而稗子所代表的恶人,以及他们所有的恶行、制度都会被除去。


然而,与此同时,神的国会以惊人的速度增长,就像一粒小小的芥菜种会长成苍天大树。一开始它可能很不起眼,然而随着它扎根成长,神国的好种子就会伸展得更远、更高、更深、更广,提供安慰、支援、安息以及平安,哪怕是在每日生活的困难中。


你找到了神国的平安和安息了吗?你愿意帮助别人也得到它吗?

✟ 祷告

主啊,求你在这个破碎的世界中,赐下平安和恩惠,帮助我们因你的缘故,将它分享出去,阿们!


普世佳音每日箴言

 Wheat, Weeds, And A Mustard Seed

“The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where did the weeds come from?’” — Matthew 13:27

✟ Devotion

We know that the world we live in has many good things and amazing blessings, but there is also hardship and brokenness. Ever since our first parents fell into sin (Genesis 3), there has been toil and trouble amid all the good things God provides us in life.


We can find and cultivate all kinds of good food, but we have to work hard for it. We can enjoy good health, but we can also get sick—and even die. Nature can be breathtakingly beautiful, but it can also be viciously cruel.

In his parable about the wheat and the weeds, Jesus points out the corruption and brokenness of life in this world. And because there is still much good amid the damaging effects of sin and evil, he is willing to wait for the time of harvest. At that time the judgment will come, and the weeds, representing wicked people and all their evil works and systems, will be cast out (see Matthew 13:36-43).


In the meantime, though, the kingdom of God will grow in surprising ways, like the huge plant that grows from a tiny mustard seed. At first it may not even be noticeable. But as it takes root and grows, the good seed of the kingdom spreads far and high and deep and wide, providing comfort and support and rest and peace, even amid the troubles of everyday life.


Have you found the peace and rest of the kingdom of God, and will you help others find it too?


✟ Prayer

Lord, grant us your peace and grace in this troubled world, and help us to share it for your sake. Amen.
